Study conducted to examine whether the Wide Range Achievement Test-3 (WRAT-3) Reading Subtest is a valid measure of premorbid intelligence among people with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The WRAT-3 Reading Subtest is a short, simple, and commonly used measure of basic word recognition skills. The test has also been used to estimate premorbid intelligence, though it had not been proven among populations with high average intelligence prior to the study. A total of 60 people participated in the study, and were tested during rehabilitation hospitalization following TBI and one year later. A slight improvement in WRAT-3 reading scores were observed, indicating that the subtest is a valid test of premorbid intelligence among people who have sustained TBI.
